Read Poem: UNLOVED, by Arlene Lagos

Everything I felt inside,
behind tall walls where I would hide
decades of pain, in which I try,
to wish away, forget, deny
Became a storm so dark and hollow,
where no one ever dared to follow
It came at once, a flood of years,
blasting out a million tears
My core it shook, my mind thrice rattled,
of demons unearthed from centuries long battle
With breath that quickened, chest impaled,
rage and sadness doth prevailed
My heart had stopped, my eyes unclear
Pain itself had rested here
No sword or shield, yet still I tried
To muster up a last goodbye
Clenched tight fists, I stumbled through
The absence of love that I named…you.
